Hi there




I've got a bit of junk needs collecting in Auckland, not much at all, maybe 4cu m. There a bit of metal in there (e.g. old garden umbrella) just the sort of stuff that would get snapped up by the guys in vans on an inorganic refuse collection weekend. 


Any ideas on the best way to get rid of it or who to call? I've no trailer or towbar.

I used the flexibin before I moved out of Auckland - that was really handy, although looking at the prices it could be expensive. 


One advantage that it had was that it caught the attention of the guys in the vans and they came rummaging through - which helped limit the amount being removed.


Often we would just stick an item out the front on a fine weekend day ... and it would be gone within 24 hours.  Sometimes it helps to put a "free" sign on it.


This was all done on the North Shore, not Auckland itself, and I don't know whether the council cracks down on "leaving" junk on the front lawn.

I heard of a story that a household wanted to get rid of their couch and put it outside with a free sign on it. It stayed there for a couple of days with no interest. They ended up putting a $300 sign on it and it was 'stolen' within 24 hours.
